MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Former Vermont state auditor Randy Brock is running for lieutenant governor.

Brock said Thursday that he is seeking the Republican nomination for the seat now held by Republican Phil Scott, who is running for governor.

Brock is the second candidate to enter the race. Small business entrepreneur Brandon Riker of Marlboro is running as a Democrat.

Brock, who ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2012, says the lieutenant governor’s job is the right fit for his skills.

He says his two terms in the senate and service as state auditor have given him the experience and perspective for the job.

He says he wants to raise issues, generate ideas and get people in business, government and individuals talking with each other across party and ideological lines.
